What if I want to sue for a larger amount of money?

Question and Answer

What if I want to sue for a larger amount of money?

If the amount of money you are trying to recover is more than the small claims money limits, but less than $20,000, your case should be filed in the regular Special Civil Part.

Cases in which damages are more than $20,000, must be filed in the Civil Part of the Law Division of the Superior Court.

If you believe you are entitled to damages greater than the money limits, but still wish to sue in small claims, you give up your right to recover damages over the money limits. The additional money cannot be claimed later in a separate lawsuit.
